Hey, Little QB Buddy!

Kevin's wishing a happy birthday to Bob Denver, who was born on this day in 1935. If there's one person in pop culture that could rival Kevin for incompetence, it would be Bob Denver's well-known character Gilligan. As far as I can tell, no one has written a Daria/Gilligan's Island crossover. All I want to know is, why not?! After all, today is also Play God Day, and what better way to play God than to manipulate the lives of your favorite fictional characters?

Don't forget to nominate for the 2017 Daria Fanworks Awards! Read the rules and nominate your favorite Written and Visual works.

  • Creak, by Jim North (part 5): "The dreamless void's hold was deep, but when Burnout next opened her eyes, the nighttime sky hanging outside her window suggested that it had also been brief."

  • Daria in: A Bad Night Can Always Get Worse, by TheBadWolfDoctor (COMPLETE!): " Oh, yeah, said Daria's brain, more than an hour too late for the information to be of any practical use to her, we moved to a different town, didn't we?"

  • God Save The Esteem: Punk is Dead, by Charles RB (part 7): "Jake had made a few specific demands in his will for his funeral procession: 1) A cardboard coffin so that he could easily break out of it 'in case I've just been sleeping really heavily' 2) The corpse needed to have five dollars in its hand 'to pay Charon and have some change after' 3) While a normal hearse was requested, it had to be blaring "Die Die My Darling" out the window at full blast 'because it has the word Die in it'"

  • Harry Potter Morgendorffer, by Meester_Lee (part 18): "The next morning, Helen started to make her arrangements for the trip. She began by reviewing her travel documents first. Everything was in order."

  • The Most Evil Daria of Them All... (Scenes No Daria fanfic should have: 600 Years Afterward.....), by Shiva (COMPLETE!): "There are many universes, there are many clusters of universes, some focus on specific periods of history, others are just dead husks, others still are dumping grounds for leftover waste from civilizations that use dead univereses as landfills, but a few find their focus on specific people."

  • Winning (Iron Chef: Very Tropic Fic), by Zetor (COMPLETE!): "SETTING: TRENT LANE and DARIA MORGENDORFFER lie curled up together on the bed in Daria Morgendorffer's room in Lawndale, Maryland/Texas/California. It has the same feel, but is neater and there are a few additions. Her computer is clearly new, there is a vanity against one wall, and her open closet is filled with fashionable clothes."
